Help me identify these 5x98 wheels!

Hey everyone,

I can't find the make and model of these 17x7" wheels:



Do you recognize them?

Yes, the center cap say "Team Dynamics" but out of 4 wheels in the set, only 3 has
got center caps that say TD. The fourth one says 100+...



Specs:
- 7.0x17"
- ET38
- Dual PCD: 5x98 and something else that haven't been able to measure properly.
- 10 spokes

The insides of the spokes say:
- 5098110
- 01544
- 144471, or it could be 144171 too.
- RIM P.T.
- 19
- X1770 38 --> the dimensions
- ENGLAND

In addition to the above, the TD center caps say
- HO45 Made in UK

Also, there's a JWL stamp but that isn't exactly helpful I believe?


Please help me out! I want to sell them because I've got no use for them.

They look like Halfords "Ripspeed" brand wheels.

The JWL stamp is a certification mark to state that the wheel meets the "Japanese light alloy wheel standard"

Well it says Team Dynamics on the centre cap but that might be a cunning trick...

Can't find any Ripspeed wheels that look identical to mine. Can you find any?

The ENGLAND mark suggests they were produced in the UK, possibly by a more renowned and respected company.

Anyone know whether Team Dynamics produce their wheels on UK soil?

As far as I know, one of the PCDs is 5x98. The wheels were fitted with standard bolts (not wobble bolts) when I took them off about a year ago, but I guess it could be 5x100 if I wasn't paying enough attention.
